Location & Directions
East Coast, Mauritius
Beau Rivage is on the east coast of Mauritius, and can be accessed by a 55 minute drive from the airport. The east coast of Mauritius is dotted with several stunning coves and lagoons and tiny cove-beaches ensuring shelter from the cool southeast trade winds, as well as the stunning long stretch of beach named Belle Mare. The island of Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean, it is situated off the southeast coast of the African continent, and 900km east of Madagascar.
When to go
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it never to feel too muggy. The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. January and February, the peak cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius (although Rodrigues has suffered far more regularly than the mainland) but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be cloaked in low-lying cloud. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons. The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school vacations, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
